Deal Alert: The tri-band Wi-Fi 6 edition

Let’s build a mesh network to stay connected

Getting a Wi-Fi network set up at home can be difficult. Despite the many different solutions out there, getting a signal into every liveable nook and cranny in your house isn’t always so easy. But a mesh network is able to put fast Wi-Fi where you need it without getting complicated. And there are some great products available that are easy to set up and keep running

A mesh network is a local network topology where the networking infrastructure (nodes) connect directly, dynamically and cooperate with one another via Wi-Fi to efficiently route data from/to connected devices. This allows you to cover a wide area with fewer nodes or go bigger and faster by installing more nodes.

This week we look at some two-node, tri-band, mesh networking solutions from different vendors that are out on the market today. A dual-band router offers two wireless networks, one operating on the 2.4GHz band and the other on 5GHz. Tri-band routers have three wireless signals, one at 2.4GHz and two on the 5GHz band. To further future-proof your network, we also looked at Wi-Fi 6 capable mesh systems.
